NOTW: Autism Awareness #5 - Half Moon Holo Gradient

This is Holly's fault. Holly, MissHollyBerries, has been posting SO many half moon mani's on her Instagram. And so, I had to as well.
I never really did half moon manis before so this was fun for me to do! Like most people, I used little circle stickers (specifically hole reinforcers) to tape over the top of my nail so my base color, which is Essie's In The Cab-ana would be left untouched.
The rest of my nail I did a holo gradient using Hit's Apolo, Jade Extasy and then at the very edge again Essie's In The Cab-ana. I used the sponging method, which you can see here.
I loved the way this looked and I got a ton of compliments on it at work! This was on my nails for a good 3 days then I switched it up because I got inspired to do something else lol.
BTW, I quite liked having just one color on my nails all month - it led to a lot of manis I didn't really ever do before, and a lot of my stash being used! I may do something like this again, but idk. We'll see :)
